Today’s real wedding will feature yours truly!  Check out my experience planning one of the most important accomplishments in my life!  Please enjoy and  share!


Our Vision

So when we initially decided to plan an anniversary party, the first thing on our mind, was FUN! FUN! FUN! We wanted to plan a memorable event that just exuded fun! Our goal was to basically dance and have amazing time! We were determine to celebrate our love in a big way! Not only did we want to celebrate our love in a big way, but we wanted to celebrate it with our loving support system. Everyone there has contributed to our success in some way.  We wanted to celebrate the people who have been there since day one.  So we made it a fun weekend filled with an outstanding, reception, brunch, and day party!


The venue

We wanted a private event with professional staff.  The Loft at 4935 was the perfect venue for us. The fully equipped venue is perfect for planning a private event. Not to mention, the one on one professional service from their event coordinator, Lina Tavares, is priceless!  Her vision and professionalism combined with my vision created a perfect event.



Anyone who knows me, know I absolutely LOVE make up! Lucky for me, I connected with the talented Ronkeya Hannon to handle  all my makeup needs. I had a vision and Ronkeya was the perfect vendor to make it happen! What I love most about Ronkeya, is her ability to effortlessly enhance your beauty and highlight your very best features!


Our Photographer

Being a wedding blogger, I come across many talented photographers. I see so many real weddings . I am not easily impressed, but Mega Pixel Media  Photography truly stole my heart! When planning a momentous event, you want an exceptional brand that will go above and beyond to provide exceptional service,  Megapixel Media photography is that brand!  I could not have made a better choice for my anniversary celebration.   Mega Pixel Media Photography  is truly a dynamic duo that demands and the directs the room. They are very skilled at getting those very important images in spite of a large crowd.  This amazing husband and wife duo manages to capture those special moments that will last a lifetime.


Our Florist

For decor, we wanted a modern club chic feel. We partnered with the artistically talented  Johanna Bonilla of Jireh’s Flowers to provide our floral centerpieces.  Johanna is a professional florist that creates unforgettable floral arrangements.  I knew she would  be perfect for my event! Johanna created cute floral centerpieces perfect for our event. The florals added a soft element to our decor. I was presently surprised at her ability to take my vision and make it a reality.  At the end of the night, I couldn’t keep guests away from my centerpieces!


The Welcome sign

One of my favorite elements by far was the welcome sign.  For the wedding sign, we chose P 27 Creative to create amazing graphics for our day !  The welcome sign was the perfect way to greet  guests upon entering the event.  Not only was the sign great for my event, but it is great to keep as a memento as well!
